Unformatted text preview: Solution to HW4 April 29, 2010 4.5 by define X = the difference between # of heads and # of tails in flips. When n heads, 0 tails: X=n; when n-1 heads, 1 tails: X=n-2; ; when 0 heads, n tails: X=-n; so we conclude that X can take n possible values in { n- 2 i, for i from 0 to n } . 4.28 Fist of all, define r.v X=# of defective items in the sample; and X follows hyper-geometric distribution with parameters N=20, m=4, and n=3. By formula on page 162, E [ X ] = nm N = 4 * 3 20 = 3 5 . 4.35 Define X=amount of money we win; because X does follow any famous distribution, we have to find its possible values and associated probabilities. Possible values= { 1.1 ,-1 } . P(X=1.1)=P(2 marbles of the same color)= ( 5 2 ) + ( 5 2 ) ( 10 2 ) = 0 . 4444444; P(X=-1)=1-P(X=1.1)= 0.5555556; E[X]=1 . 1 * . 4444444- 1 * . 5555556 =- . 06666676. Var[X]=0 . 444444 * (1 . 1 + 0 . 06666676) 2 + 0 . 5555556 * (- 1 + 0 . 06666676) 2 = 1 . 088888....
